Brett Kimberlin Is Popehat’s “Censorious Asshat of the Year”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 1:56 pm

Over at Popehat, the voting is complete:

He ran away with it.

I have been waiting for Ken to make the announcement, but since he doesn’t appear to be saying anything about it, I figured I would. The world needs to know!

  2. He got almost as many votes as the other 10 combined

  3. I wonder if they think the damage to their reputations was worth it. I notice most of them have quieted down. Have they finally figured how badly they have wounded themselves?

    I’m going to go out on a limb and declare that the answer is “no.”

  6. My suggested candidate for this dubious award would have been Larry Cohen, president of the Communications Workers of America… a Commie CSer of the Third Kind.

  9. Has Popehat notified his local PD of the upcoming swatting attack?

  10. I voted for Brett, but it’s good to go over to Popehat’s and learn more about the other worthy contenders. If there’s any good to come of Brett in this world, it’s awareness of abuses against free speech.

  14. Colonel, hopefully, we’ll get a Harbaugh VS Harbaugh Super Bowl.

  15. Terrorist Brett Kimberlin, Asshat of the Year.

    Ha, ha, in prison, Brett Kimberlin was voted “the Ass” of the Cellblock.
    Then again, he’s such a little munchkin that he couldn’t just say, “No !”—even if he would have wanted to decline to participate.

    OUCH.
    Uh, figuratively and literally.

    (He was also voted “The Mouth” of the Cellblock, but I’ll save that particular insult for a future Brett Kimberlin thread.)

    Unfortunately it will have no effect on Mayor for Life Mumbles Menino. He’ll continue to get reelected every four years.

  19. He didn’t make a big announcement because you and others turned it into a travesty by stuffing the ballot box.

  20. Mike, how do you stuff a ballot box on that one? Are you mad because your favorite asshat didn’t win? Or because Kimberlin did?

    Comment by SPQR (768505) — 1/21/2013 @ 9:52 am

  21. The Popehat authors would have been capable of stuffing the ballot box (had they so chosen), but no one else could. That Kimberlin’s supporters showed up to vote, while others did not, in no way deligitimizes this exercise in democracy, as Presidents Kerry and Romney could inform you.

    To the extent we’ve delayed announcement of the winner, it’s only that we’re engaged in fierce debate on a suitable prize.
